Nepalese UN police chief: Children are South Sudan's future

Listen /

 

Children in South Sudan "must not be deprived" of their right to quality education.

That's the passionate view of Shambhu Upreti, who commands the Nepal Formed Police Unit (FPU), currently supporting conflict-affected school children in South Sudan as part of the UN mission, UNMISS.

Since the outbreak of major civil conflict in 2013, many children have been forced to go to school in UN Protection-of-Civilian sites.

Mr Upreti spoke with Mach Samuel about how Nepalese peacekeepers and the UN can help dissolve conflict and create a peaceful environment at last for children.
